Table 4 Key attributes and odds ratio of intention to fulfil the 3-year mandatory service: a multivariable logistic regression with marginal effects

From: Thailand special recruitment track of medical students: a series of annual cross-sectional surveys on the new graduates between 2010 and 2012

  1. The goodness of fit using the Hosmer and Lemeshow test showed a Pearson Chi-square and its P value as follows: 28.15 (P value = 0.030), 8.27 (0.94) and 30.26 (0.025) for the 2010, 2011, and 2012 batch, respectively. $Absolute margins are the absolute effects (probabilities) of intention to fulfil the 3-year obligations given the particular variable compared to the probabilities without that variable. For instance, in the 2010 batch, graduates from special track had 12% higher probabilities to fulfil the 3-year obligations than those from the normal track. *, Statistical significance at 95% level of confidence; **, statistical significance at 99% level of confidence.
